Multiple Grammy Award winning singer Beyonce Knowles has revealed that she could never ever think of throwing tantrums like other divas, for she still remembers the time her mother slapped her for acting like a brat.

"I was 15 and we had a single, NO, NO, NO, and it went to number one and I thought I was grown up. I was singing in a record store, ignoring her when she was talking to me.

I was being defiant and she slapped me in my face, which she's never done in her life. She said, 'You better listen to me when I talk to you. Don't think that you can do that now that you have a number one single'," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

The Baby Boy singer revealed that though the experience had left her embarrassed and shocked, it had proved effective in getting rid of her 'diva thing'.

"I was so embarrassed and shocked because I'd never got a spanking before but that was the best thing she ever did because from that moment I was starting to get that little diva thing. From that moment on I never went there and it put me in my place before it started," she added.
